Single in Hudson...
Yes, the posts are slipping. You can yell at me, it's fine. I deserve it.
One, I'm been busy, but two, I've become a little disheartened. I'll put it all out there, for discussion.
You give me advice.
The "Demi-Monde" had a FABULOUS soiree this past weekend. A wonderful cocktail party, dozens of attractive gay men from who-the-fuck knows where. The cocktail party was by far the gayest and most fabulous event I've been to in Hudson. I cannot give enough credit to my host who opened up his wonderful house....it was amazing!! Thank you.
I have no idea where my friend found these guys. There was no interior design work done anywhere within a 50 mile radius of Hudson on last Saturday night.
So, here I am, a single gay male at a wonderful gay cocktail party. Granted, I was very late, but I met a lot of guys. This is me meeting guys:
"My partner Jim, standing right there, and I....."
"So, the two of us bought a house together three years ago..."
"The fois gras apppetizer at DA-BA is simply fabulous, you MUST try it..."
Fact is, it's a shallow pond for the single gay guy.....
I bought my house so that my dog could have a backyard --- and that I could have another tax deduction. Give me my laptop, a coffee maker, high speed internet access, my dog, and my yoga mat, and I'm happy.
Then I started going out. And the friends that I've met in Hudson are all WONDERFUL! It's like being in college again. Finally, people my own age with similar interests! I cannot complain about that.
But, the dating pool is very small.
If I meet a cute guy, I'll turn to a friend and say, 'what's his story?'
If he's not already in a couple, and he's single, there's usually a 'BUT'...
BUT - he shot his mother and keeps the remains in a Loehman's box under the bed.
BUT - he only dates guys from Zimbabwe.
BUT - he's still high from the Black Party two months ago.
Or, something like that....
(Granted, I'm not exactly "peaches and cream" myself. I am not for the faint of heart.)
But if you look at the gay guys in the area, take out the guys who are in couples, and the drunks, then who's left?
....and usually the drunks are the most fun!
And I'm not expecting the love of my life....but dinner and a movie would be nice...
What's a single Hudson faigeleh to do?
